Nerf gun champion hopes to join TNP Readers Carnival's competition again
Nerf champion excited to join competition at TNP Readers Carnival again
Friends of Singapore Polytechnic student Linn Min Htoo, 17, say he is a nice guy - until you hand him a Nerf gun.
Then, he turns into a Rambo with sponge bullets. He has won several Nerf tournaments here, including the Nerf Powerplay tournament in 2013.
Last year, Min Htoo emerged as the winner of the Nerf competition held at TNP Readers Carnival.
"I practised shooting soda cans at home and attended the bi-weekly Nerf games that are held by our local community to learn from other players and improve my techniques," said Min Htoo, who has been playing with Nerf guns for six years.
With the Nerf competition back again at this year's TNP Readers Carnival, which will be held on March 18 to 20, Min Htoo hopes to defend his title.
He said: "If time allows, I'll definitely come to this year's carnival as well.
"I'm very excited to join the competition again. I'll bring my Nerfing community, Nerf Singapore."
